Downstream from the Digital Humanities: Digital Methods and the Scholarly Communications Ecosystem - A NeDimah Working Paper Meeting - 15-16 May 2014, Zadar, Croatia

‘Digital humanities’ has exploded in recent years, with new journals and research groups, dedicated funding streams from research councils, etc. Of course, digital technologies can be used in myriad ways to facilitate the research process, to enable new forms of analysis, and to enhance the dissemination process. But what is digital humanities? Is it always computational? Does it necessarily require interdisciplinary collaboration? How does that work? And how is the work of interdisciplinarity recognized within the academic reward system? Is there a new style of knowing emerging in the humanities?
